Tea Parties

Find Your Tribe at a CHIMA party!

We recently hosted a Chima party for an incredibly sweet little guy turning 7. Tired of all the princess parties, we jumped at the chance to try something different, enter the CHIMA!

I am now well versed in Chima lore and am certain that before coffee, I belong to Crunket’s tribe of crocodiles.  How fun is Chima in that there are roles for boys AND girls? Wondering if I could get someone to make me some cool Eris wings for when I need a break from my fairy wings?

But I digress. Check out these fun pics from a super fun Chima party!

During the Chima party, we drank sweet Chi (tea!), searched for missing orbs, played pin the sword on Laval, guess the Chima character, and decorated our swords. During the manners lesson we had to reinstate our “No Weapons At The Table” rule like we did with the pirates.

It was fun.  What have you done for your fave Chima kid?

Tea Parties + Crafts = FUN!


When Leah and I host our book themed tea parties, all the kids like to make crafts. Let’s be clear on this one question I am asked all the time: BOYS LOVE CRAFTS TOO.

You see the collage above and the two masks? Made by BOYS. Meticulously decorated just like any girl would. In fact, this party goer was dressed as Iron Man. LOVE!

In the second of our How To videos, today we’re showing you how to make a tea pot picture frame. These frames can be used for many different types of parties:

  • Birthday parties
  • Baby showers
  • Bridal showers
  • Mother’s Day tea
  • etc.

When the craft is complete, plop your fave photo inside for an adorable keepsake. Here’s our video on how to get it done.

How cute is that little tea pot?

Thanks to Oriental Trading Co for supplying us with crafts to share with you. What’s your go to craft for parties?
